Satoshi Nakamoto

// noun

EN The founding father (or mother?) of Bitcoin! In 2008, he distributed a paper (Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System) which was nothing less than the birth of Bitcoin and the maturation of the underlying Blockchain Technology. So far, the only thing we know of Nakamoto is a very big pile of conspiracy theories. To this date it has been impossible to know the real identity of the mysterious Satoshi Nakamoto. His name's significance is very intriguing though. 'Satoshi' means "clear thinking; wise". 'Naka' means "medium, inside, or relationship". "Moto" means "origin". So, it's even debatable if he/she/it is Japanese! Why do people want to know so desperately who he is? Well, there are the crypto/tech-groupies, yes, but there is a big group of people interested in his identity because he owns over 4 billion dollars worth of Bitcoins! Talk about a sugar-daddy!


NL De oprichter (of oprichtster?) van Bitcoin! In 2008, verspreidde hij een paper (Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System). Daarmee bracht hij zo maar even de geboorte van Bitcoin teweeg en de maturatie van de achterliggende technologie. Het enige dat we tot nu toe weten over Nakamoto is niet meer dan een berg complottheorieën. Tot op vandaag is het onmogelijk gebleken om de echte identiteit van de mysterieuze Satoshi Nakamoto te ontraadselen. De betekenis van zijn naam is op zich al heel intrigerend. ‘Satoshi’ betekent ‘helder denken; wijs’. ‘Naka’ betekent ‘medium; binnen; of relatie’. ‘Moto’ betekent ‘origine’. Het is dus zelfs niet zeker dat hij/zij/het Japans is! Waarom willen mensen zo wanhopig graag weten wie hij is? Wel, er zijn inderdaad de crypto/tech-groupies, ja. Maar er zijn ook een hoop mensen gewoon geïnteresseerd in zijn identiteit omdat die gast meer dan 4 miljard aan Bitcoins in zijn zakken heeft! #sugardaddy

What's with this lexicon?

Digital transformation, Artificial intelligence, Robots takings our jobs, ... my GOD what a scary time we live in! Right? No, not really. We live in a very exciting time of endless possibilities, of genius new answers to questions we haven’t even been able to formulate... Some people just want to make good money by starting a fire and then being hired to put it out. We don’t like that at Bagaar. No apocalyptic vibes for us, we’re too zen for that.

The intelligence game will be won by those who know how to ask & answer questions critically.

Technology is evolving at a crazy pace, absolutely, and sometimes it might be a bit mindblowing, but don’t worry, humans are still the writers of this story, we decide how it goes. At Bagaar we help our clients every day to gear up for any technological challenge they may be up to, we have a very big toolbox of digital answers to their problems and are very happy to help them in writing their own story. This time we wanted to do something not only for our clients but for everyone, our moms, the guy at the busstop, politicians, journalists, whoever may be helped with a little free knowledge.

Core message here: Trojan: Nice for the greeks, not for you.

So, we wrote this lexicon in the assumption that if people would have more information, and a bit of guidance, they wouldn’t have to feel so helpless when hearing about Digital transformation, MVP’s, Frontend, AWS, Trojans, UX, UI, ... (Que?) We assembled all the buzzwords we use on a daily basis and tried to give a down to earth, simple explanation for each of them. Take it with you, read through it when you’re waiting on a train or getting your nails done and next time somebody starts a fire, you just blow it out yourself (or if it’s too big call Bagaar).
